Financial manager's guide to medical data processing in the U.S.A.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Rising costs and increasing demand for high quality care are posing major problems for management. These can be solved by the introduction of computerized systems which alleviate congestion and upgrade medical communication networks, reduce errors, make medical information more accessible, improve hospital administration and help in decision making. Twenty four areas of possible use are described. Hospital communication systems integrate these different areas by one of several possible approaches which are detailed. The major computer companies which have entered computer based health care systems are listed and their fields of work described. It is stressed that use of advanced communication concepts demands careful definition of the scope and nature of each task.
